Safeguarding Partnership Arrangements for Northamptonshire
Northamptonshire new safeguarding arrangements as set out in Working Together 2018.
The main changes in these partnership arrangements are as follows:
There are now three organisations in Northamptonshire who are jointly responsible for the partnership arrangements for keeping children safe:
- Northamptonshire County Council
- Northamptonshire Police
- Northamptonshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (Nene CCG and Corby CCG)
The Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Board will change its name to the Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Partnership.
The Partnership will adopt a new structure which includes someone independent who will challenge its work and focus on learning.
At the heart of the arrangements is a commitment from all agencies to work together to keep children safe and to continuously improve working practices and to learn how to best do this.
